Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is well suited for large organizations that need a powerful, comprehensive and robust CMS to manage multiple websites/translations of websites. It is also well suited for those who need a CMS that is well integrated with other systems such as analytics, targeting and email marketing, or those who want some fancy add ons like Adobe smart tags or AI-enhanced capabilities.It is also an expensive product with a steep learning curve, so it is less appropriate for smaller companies/individuals or those that don't need an overly robust system that is integrated with other digital marketing tools. If you're looking for a more affordable solution that is easy to pick up and play, go with a more basic WordPress or Joomla type option.

I am not a huge fan of the platform because our Medallia Project Team does all the work for us. They don't do a great job of communicating how things work and the limitations of the platform.

Pros

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Adobe Experience Manager keeps your content separate from your layout which allows for a lot of flexibility in how you display your content.
  • Adobe Experience Manager integrates really well with other Adobe products like Adobe Analytics.
  • Adobe Experience Manager 's drag and drop interface makes it fairly easy to utilize with minimal familiarity.

Medallia

  • Integration with Salesforce: Medallia can be fully integrated with Salesforce or other CRM systems with all the data in both places and Account Managers/Sales, CSM's, Support, Onboarding, executives, etc., never have to leave SF and they have a Dashboard in SF tailored to their role. All data is available in real-time.
  • Closed loop: Great closed-loop where alerts are sent out to the right person in real time if there is a detractor or dissatisfied customer. This means you can contact the customer within 24 hours, which wows your customers and makes it easy to move to customers from a Detractor to a Promoter.
  • Actionable insights: Medallia has amazing dashboards, that give you the data you need along with text analytics to make changes based on your customer needs, pain points and trends. It gives you all the tools you need to take the right actions to improve you customer experience and the bottom-line.

Cons

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Upgrading and applying patches can be hit or miss - I recommend backups because of the potential to damage the existing infrastructure
  • Space management is an issue - every change or request takes up space that can be reclaimed, but only through a complicated procedure done through command prompts. There was no documentation for this on their site and we had to use a third party to create the procedure. It has to be run manually.
  • There isn't a good backup system, particularly one that can be scheduled to run reliably.

Medallia

  • Unable to export personal information into Excel causing a lot of manual work
  • Difficult to integrate with other systems due to the need for unique account identifiers
  • Missing some functionality. Need more pre-defined template responses. Would be nice to copy email addresses from the response tab without it opening up the response. Need different views of some reports
  • Search bars are finicky sometimes. Example- It's difficult to find users in the response subscribe section

We had and still have a fantastic experience using Adobe CQ. Lots of flexibility, great integration with other Adobe products we already use and a powerful technology make it a great fit for our corporate environment. Also as the community grows, it makes it easier to network with other developers and users to get new ideas on how to continue to get the best out of the software.

I personally feel that AEM is very intuitive to use from an authoring standpoint. The entire CMS was engineered around the author. Everything about AEM is geared to helping authors generate and maintain content. There are ways that tool tips can be customized so that any individual could simply hover over and be guided step by step on how to author web content

Depending on your individual needs, It is really quite simple to create an authoring experience for a website that looks really good. I have been part of many implementations and many teams and have seen many projects that were super successful and others that were not implemented well. AEM has room for a lot of flexibility in the implementation process compared to other CMS like SharePoint

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Experience Manager

I think AEM is specific to the client's needs and is not necessarily comparable to all other platforms. However, when compared feature to feature I think AEM many times is a leader in the industry. While WordPress has progressed in the WYSIWYG interface it is not there still today and this is truly where AEM shines against all of the other CMS platforms.

If you have a very large business with multiple outlets, Medallia is a reasonable choice to make because of the major scalability and the vast amounts of data you can collect. If you are a small, one-off, or independent business, it can be very costly and not all of the tools are necessary for you. I do not like the user experience or report visualizations as much as the reports on Revinate and TrustYou. Revinate is my favorite of the three so far.

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Our direct business landing pages have seen an increase in ROI since switching to Adobe Experience Manager.
  • Our non-direct pages have seen a severe drop-off in traffic and conversions since the switch to Adobe Experience Manager. The more creative, editorial-type content that used to be imperative to our site is now relegated to second tier. Just getting a "content hub" with this site was a beast of a project.
  • The overall efficiency of our web team has increased with bulk edits, so that they can make single updates and impact our multiple sites. This is a huge money-saver for team staffing.

Medallia

  • You have full visibility into what your customers are thinking on a wide spectrum, allowing you to get out of specific anecdotes and really determine your strengths and weaknesses.
  • You'll be able to make your customers feel more valued in asking for their feedback in improving, adding another layer of positive to the customer experience.
  • Medallia will help your employees learn what they're doing well and where they can get better, automatically helping to keep all of your employees continuously improve.
